Tightwad Tuesday: Giuseppe Zanotti E00334 Sandal for a Steal

Kitty cats, on the left you will find Giuseppe Zanotti’s enchanting E00334 Sandal; to the right allow your pretty peepers to take in the glamorous sight of DV by Dolce Vita’s Cleo Sandal.

Though there is no question that the silver studding found upon the elegant E00334 is ever so slightly more pronounced than the blend of pewter and goldtone studding found upon the charming Cleo; for just $94.95, as opposed to the $875.00 needed to add the Zanotti beauties to your ever-burgeoning shoe collection, they are just as capable of making your many admirers stop dead in their tracks – and allow the budget babe to pick up a pair in all three colors (black, brown, and natural).

Which role have you decided to undertake on this terrific Tuesday, kittens? Tightwad or spendthrift?


Fashionably yours!

Oh, I love both of them...

Maddy said...

I'm actually liking the stud embellishments in the Dolce Vita pair much better! Gives it that "edgy" vibe :)

The Favour Shoppe said...

I agree with Janet....LOVE them both.

Krysten @ After 'I Do' said...

I'd say I'm a spendthrift today.

CC said...

I like the Dolche Vita pair because I think the dull gold accents look a lot better than the silver ones.
Fab post! :)

Allegra said...

Dancing Branflake said...

ivy's closet said...

I love the both, but on the cheap for me. Awesome find!

Style with Benefits said...

holy cow, i'd never drop nearly $900 on shoes! if it was a bag, maybe a different story. :)

i do prefer the zanotti pair only because of the deeper brown, chocolate color. but the dv definitely comes in a close second. another great find, erika!

xx, becs

Cheryl: Oh to Be a Muse said...

ellie said...

So beautiful. I like the cheaper one.

Audrey Allure said...

Both are gorgeous!

The Blonde Duck said...

Cheap chic for me!

E said...

Love the DV one! The more studs the better!!

la petite fashionista said...

i like the studs on the DV one; sort of more military inspired; both are gorge

Valerie said...

DV is SUCH a great line. They always make the best knock offs and are so up on all the current trends. These are no exception! Great find, Erika!

Bella *Bellgetsreal said...

Wow! how do you find these deals?

Such a fun look. Totally do not have the legs for them but fun anyhow.

Sherin said...

You know what a shoe freak I am, so I'm very obsessed with this style. I love both of them: they're stunning. I can't choose which one I prefer.

Savvy Gal said...

i like dolce vita for that little bit of detail.

meg said...

Somehow, the cheaper one looks to have a more sturdy heel...but still, I'm not sure I'd feel comfortable in them. So pretty to look at though.

AH said...

i'd have to go for the gz ones - they are beautiful!!

A La Mode et Plus! said...

I think I like the DV better this time, because I like the brown/gold combo better than the brown/silver. Keep up the awesome work girl!!

this free bird said...

No brainer here - the DV is an amazing deal. I just wish it didn't have all the little studs. I really like the way GZ has positioned his with larger and more sparse ones.

Oh Giuseppe!

Great find Erika! You're a natural at this!!

xoxo,
Carrie

I love Dolce Vita--their stuff is actually pretty high quality. I kind of like the gold accents a little bit better than the silver, too.

Cindy Whitehead said...

either one - love both!!

Jennifer Fabulous said...

The inexpensive pair is just as fabulous! I adore these shoes. Sigh.

You have the most FABULOUS taste! xo

Sweet Confessions said...

I like the Dolce Vita better!! =)

The Anthology said...

Eek! I love the details on both.

But maybe, just maybe I'd splurge in the hopes that the more expensive version would be more comfortable. Perhaps?

Sarah said...

They look so alike! But I'm splurging to day:)

Josie said...

I LOVE the DV ones! Gorgeous and so chic.

If the choice is between losing a mite of sparkle on your feet or in your pocket, I guess it is better to lose it on your feet. No one is going to notice, but you will surely feel it in your pocket.
Great post, just shows you what can be done if you shop around a bit.

Thanks Erika, for a great post, I tweeted it for you.

Hope your week has been going well so far.

Colin.

molly said...

I definitely like Zanotti better because of the colour and the detailing.

Rachel said...

I have to go with the DV by Dolce Vita pair. I'm loving all the extra little studs on them! Very cool.
